Your thoughts?

The ST100 is still the benchmark and easily the best screen I've ever used or seen. The G4 just moves the ST130 closer to that performance in terms of visible texture, but it doesn't match it (either with texture or brightness uniformity). If I had a target brightness in mind for a screen setup and I could achieve it easily with either screen, I would probably lean toward the ST100 (so long as I had some headroom for lamp dimming and such). The ST130 would also allow you to use an aperture a bit more to increase contrast in the image, so that is a bonus. But if I had plenty of headroom already with a ST100, I'd stick with it.
